Ok it does sound like a voltage issue. If the battery and alternator have been replaced it is possible one is defective. I also recommend we check all the power and ground cable connections. I have seen some issues with the power cables going to the alternator as well as the ground for the engine. Also let me know if you have a V6 or V8 engine.

V6. 3.0

OK please check the heavy gauge wire from the starter to the alternator to make sure it is not burnt or corroded. Also in the passenger front wheel arch there is the main battery cable connection as well as the engine ground. Make sure both are clean and secure. The engine ground is on the bottom starter stud so make sure that is also not damaged.
